Does the mere thought of Alzheimer’s Disease scare you? It does me! This dreadful disease is on the rise and in addition to getting to the root cause, we need to identify preventative measures AND“treatment” that actually works. This study is a MUST READ for all!
“This paper discusses the effects of curcumin on patients with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Curcumin (Turmeric), an ancient Indian herb used in curry powder, has been extensively studied in modern medicine and Indian systems of medicine for the treatment of various medical conditions, including cystic fibrosis, hemorrhoids, gastric ulcers, colon cancers, breast cancer, atherosclerosis, liver diseases and arthritis. It has been used in various types of treatments for dementia and traumatic brain injury. Curcumin also has a potential role in the prevention and treatment of AD. Curcumin as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and lipophilic action improves the cognitive functions in patients with AD. A growing body of evidence indicates that oxidative stress, free radicals, beta amyloid, cerebral deregulation caused by bio-metal toxicity and abnormal inflammatory reactions contribute to the key event in Alzheimer’s disease pathology. Due to various effects of curcumin, such as decreased Beta-amyloid plaques, delayed degradation of neurons, metal-chelation, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and decreased microglia formation, the overall memory in patients with AD has improved. This paper reviews the various mechanisms of actions of curcumin in AD and pathology”.

Based upon this research, it is obvious that a good dose of quality Turmeric will help fend off the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease AND can actually improve the cognitive function of those already “diagnosed”.
Turmeric should be a part of daily protocol for many reasons. As is the case with most health related protocols, all Turmeric is not created equal. Okinawa is known for the finest Turmeric in the world and “Ukon” is undoubtedly the best available option for all. Of course, you can’t count on your doctor tell you that…there is too much money at stake in the treatment and care of those with Alzheimer’s Disease. Sad but true.
Wash all nutrients and supplements down with healthy water (there is only ONE) and you’re off to a great start to wellness and prevention!
